William Terry Brookes 1864-1923, location of last home address.

My great grandfather William Terry Brookes, was a landscape artist. At the time of his death in 1923, he and his wife Hannah were living at 8 Fisher Street, Old Trafford. He is buried in Stretford Cemetery.

A look at old, <Click>, using the same co-ordinates 382916 and 396569, and this time the 1908-1909 1:10,560 OS map, will show you that they lived just around the corner from his father Warwick 1808-1882. Fisher Street is again off Stretford Road, between Johnson Street and Lucy Street. Below is what Fisher Street looks like today. This view is from Johnson Street, which still exists.

Again, the map is interactive, so have a look around. The area has again changed beyond all recognition due to modern development.
